This is a fantastic lesson plan on genocides in history that incorporates Common Core strategies, cooperative learning, and higher-level thinking.
It includes 6 one page readings on genocides in history (the Armenian genocide, the Holocaust, Stalin's Great Purge, Cambodia, Rwanda, and Darfur) along with a chart students complete on each genocide's info. This can be completed as a station activity, in groups, or individually.
After completing the readings and chart, students analyze the United Nations' definition of genocide and work together to create a new one and apply it to one of the genocides they read about.
This download includes both printable and Google Docs versions of the activity
